Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a timeless beauty icon. She took the world by a storm after winning the Miss World pageant in 1994 and is often referred to as the most beautiful woman in the world. Over the years, the actress has aged like fine wine, making us want to copy all her beauty rituals ASAP. In our quest to find out how Aishwarya makes 47 look like 27, we dived deep into her beauty routine and here are five beauty lessons we learnt from the stunner.

 

01. Essential oils for the tresses

01. Essential oils for the tresses

Aish loves oiling her tresses with essential oils to keep them nourished and healthy. Her favourite essential oil, though? Avocado! This gentle essential oil is a natural humectant, which means IT can draw moisture from the air and lock it in your tresses. Whether you need to create new champi blends or just need to smooth out flyaways, the avocado essential oil can do all that and more!

 

02. Cucumber pulp to the rescue

02. Cucumber pulp to the rescue

Being a working actress in the public eye can be stressful, and constantly wearing makeup can stress your skin! Ash has a quick, go-to remedy to soothe stressed and inflamed skin — cucumber pulp! The actress likes to reap the cooling benefits of cucumber, blending it and mixing it up in yoghurt to help calm irritated skin. We also suggest re-purposing the water taken out of the pulp for a cool glass of cucumber water to treat your insides as well.

The actress loves to draw focus to her mesmerising green eyes, making thick mascaras and bold brow products her best friends.

Aishwarya confessed in an interview that the beauty mantra she always likes to follow is, “It’s moisture out and moisture in!”. The actress likes to follow a proper routine to maintain the hydration levels in her skin — moisturising and misting at the first of skin tightness. Moisturising helps keep your skin supple and youthful-looking.
